Biography of AdeleSomeone says that the world of show business is dog-eat-dog and complicated. And these words, of course, are not meaningless. However, sometimes in this world of insidiousness and intrigue, there are truly fabulous stories. One of them is the creative biography of British singer Adele.
Childhood and familyThe future star Adele Laurie Blue Adkins was born on May 5, 1988, in Tottenham – an area in north London, which is known for frequent riots and flourishing organized crime. At least that's how things were in those years. Only emigrants from Arab countries and the poor lived in this area. The future singer's family belonged to the second category.
The first steps to successThe first public performance for the future star of the British and world stage was the performance of the song "Rise" from the repertoire of singer Gabrielle within the framework of the school production.
In 2006, the singer recorded several demos. The songs turned out to be so successful that, without consulting her, Adele's friends decided to put them on the MySpace social service page. Songs were noticed by prominent British producers from the record company XL Recordings. As the singer herself repeatedly admitted, the call from the record-label office became a pleasant surprise for her. "I took off the phone and at first thought, it was a joke," she recalled.
19The first real hit of a singer was the song "Chasing Pavements", which only a couple of weeks after the official release reached the second line of the national charts of Britain.
And the debut album of a singer "19" was released in 14 days. Adele was at this age at the time of its release.
Adele received her first music award before the release of her first album. This was the Brit AwardsCritics' Choice Award - an award for young singers who have not yet released a full-fledged studio album. However, this success immediately faded before the number of all sorts of awards that fell on the singer after the release of her first record "19". Critics expatiated in praise and nicknamed Adele "queen of soul".
21Three years later, the impressive success of the first studio album surpassed Adele's second album, entitled "21". The singer started working on the material for the album in 2009, which coincided with the quarrel in the relationship with her partner. Many of the songs from her second album were inspired by their feelings. For example, the emotional "Take It All" Adele wrote at the time of a serious quarrel with her beloved, gloomy "Rolling in the Deep" – an answer to the mocking remarks of her boyfriend, who believed that the girl's life would be worthless without him, and "Rumour Has It" – a taunt directed to gossip friends.
25After the release of the second album, Adele found happiness in her personal life (for more details, see below): she had a husband and a child, and this is the reason for the long break between the 2nd and 3rd albums. "The next album will be released in two years, I want to live for myself," Adele admitted in 2012.
As soon as the son of the singer turned 18 months old, Adele returned to the recording studio, full of ideas for new creativity. His leitmotif was the happiness of motherhood. However, the first attempts were unsuccessful: the resulting music seemed to the singer boring. Instead of the promised 2014, the album was released in November 2015.
Personal life of AdeleAs we have already mentioned above, the album "21" is inspired by experiences after parting with a man. But Adele, a rather private person, does not advertise the name of the "culprit". The fans could only guess – who is this man who broke the heart of the people's favorite?
In 2011, Adele found true love. Simon Konecki, the owner of a large investment holding, became the man-boy of actress's choice. Simon is older than Adele for 14 years, but this fact did not interfere with lovers. By the way, the song "Someone Like You" from the same album "21" is dedicated to him.
In April 2020, Adele fans were extremely surprised by her new appearance: the singer, beloved by millions, lost more than 40 kilograms. Many fans noted that they loved the singer in the same form, but Adele herself did not like her previous appearance. That is why she subjected herself to a rigid diet and shock training.
